Hydroelectric Sauna

Renowned as one of the country's most unique saunas, our sauna not only provides the option of wet or dry warmth but also a clean, cool basin of water immediately within. Guests need not step out to cool down. The cool water is among the cleanest onsite, coming from what used to be the Silver Dollar pond and previously provided drinking water for the Village. A heated changing room allows a comfortable transition into the sauna and nice place to keep robes, towels, and footwear warm and cozy while swimming or in the sauna. The sauna temperature regulates between 130°F and 160°F when steamed. In the spirit of sustainable energy, our sauna is powered entirely from our on-site hydroelectric power plant.
